An Ethical Argument Against Same-Sex Marriage: The Outcome of Marriages
First, from the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
• Number of marriages: 2,197,000
• Marriage rate: 7.3 per 1,000 total population
• Divorce rate: 3.6 per 1,000 population (46 reporting States and D.C.)
Second, I recently received an e-mail from a visitor to this blog which included the following comment:"I have often wondered, with the dismal success rate of marriage in the western world, why gay people would want to emulate that most dysfunctional of co-habitations.....the desire for total equality, I suppose."
Third, I have nothing further to write to this thread except await your responses. ..Maurice.
